Trade base in Raft: where to find a store

Raft is a survival game where players navigate the sea. They will start on a small raft drifting among the waves. With only a hook as a companion, players must extract materials from the sea and gradually build a raft to become a real home.

In addition to relying on sea rescues and islands, Raft players can also find special items available in the Trade Base. This fancy looking building can only be found in certain locations and of course they will also need a special currency to trade. Unfortunately, even though the booth doesn’t seem to be guarded, people won’t be able to raid the store and get stuff for free. It seems that even though the world has been plunged into great upheaval, honesty is still the main value that needs to be upheld.

Where to find trade bases in Raft

Trading bases can be found on the large islands in the Raft. The store is always adorned with fancy lights, so it’s hard to miss. Typically, these buildings are on high ground on the island and have trees around them that players can harvest, so it’s a good idea to bring an ax with you.

In addition, tameable animals will also roam here, as well as the vicious Screecher, one of the most dangerous beasts in Raft.

Unfortunately, while some of the items in the Trade Base may seem intriguing, players need to own special currencies in order to trade, namely Trade Coins and Junk Cubes.

How to get coins and compressed trash

In Trade Bases, players must understand the reputation system, trade coins, and trash cubes.

Reputation system

Inside the Trade Base, players will find a reputation indicator. Reaching a new level of Reputation will unlock higher tier items in the shop’s inventory.

To increase it, you need to sell rare fish to the store. Unlike regular fish, these special species require a special Lure to catch. Using these lures will also ensure players only get rare fish, so try not to use lures if people are trying to fish themselves.

  • Common Fish Bait: Allows you to catch only rare fish of the first level;
  • Improved Fish Bait: Allows you to catch only level 2 rare fish;
  • Expert Fish Bait: Only catches rare tier 3 fish.

Unfortunately, these lures can only be bought at the Trade Base, so before players can increase their reputation, they need to first get some trash cubes.

Pressed garbage

Junk cubes can be obtained through the Recycler. This item can be obtained after players start the storyline by visiting the Radio Tower.


Coins can be obtained by selling rare fish in the Trade Base. Rare fish of the first and second levels give one trade coin, and the third level – two coins. The only difference between level 1 and 2 is the reputation points that players get when they sell them. The lowest level gives 10 reputation points and the other one gives 100.
